Healing from Within

A week ago, I cut the tip of my right thumb while making thin potato slices with a mandoline (a highly effective, but dangerous, kitchen tool). When it happened, it bled profusely for quite a while, requiring pressure, elevation, and a number of changes of bandages. It really hurt. For a day or so thereafter, the slightest pressure produced more pain and bleeding. I had to be careful to leave it alone and keep it safe. But within four days, it was completely closed and no longer painful and I...

It passed through my mind that maybe they were in the car in the garage, but I didn't even look there because I was so sure I was...

Yes, but…

Those of us who work in the field of Innate Health are unconditionally certain that all people have innate health, vibrancy and resiliency always accessible, even if rarely accessed. Why are we certain? Because everyone in this work has seen it for themselves, through moments of inner quietude in which we experienced insights that are deeper and more compelling than the intellect. These are not apocalyptic moments. They are simple. We find ourselves with a quiet mind in a positive feeling state into which the logic of our spiritual nature tiptoes...
